    Detail Pages With More Than One Record
    I have searched the documentation but have not found the answer to this one. There must be away to put 2, 3, or 4 products on a detail page.

    By definition, detail pages are those which display data from a single record on the page. Index pages display data from multiple records.

    I think you'll find what you're looking for by following the links at the top of this page to the two excellent tutorials on WebMerge.

    Yes I have used both of those good tutorials to do my first 300 page project. In it there was one detail page per record. I guess from what you are saying that to put 4 to the page you would have to treat them as small indexes. I'm thinking there might be times that I would only want to use a few examples from several categories.

    For the moment you can use the WM-If tag to conditionally include desired products, but since I'm developing a query tool for v3.0 perhaps you can help me with something: How do you determine which products are included on such a page? Do you make these choices subjectively by hand, or are they driven by specific criteria (price, etc.)?

    It's still in the hypothetical mode for me and maybe there wouldn't be a need. I was thinking if there was a rather large feed and quite a few clearly defined categories that maybe creating a condensed feed by picking a few favorites from each would be good sometime. I am really too new at all this for you to be listening to me though.

    I really like WebMerge and thank you for your help.

    You can use the "Include" function to insert products. I have done this with some success. If the item on the page is about widgets, use the "IF" function to insert a promotion or whatever if the description of the main item on the page has the word Widget in it.
    Between these two functions, you can do most anything with Webmerge.
